MAIN AND LIBERTY
GIVE CONCERT FEB. 28
Great Pianist and 'Celloist Appear
Together in Last Pre-festival
The last number on this year's pre-
festival concert series will be given
in Hill auditorium Wednesday even-
ing, February 28, by two of the world's
leading artists, Harold Bauer, the dis-
tinguished pianist, whose previous ap-
pearances in Ann Arbor have always
elicited the greatest enthusiasm; and
Pablo Casals, who is considered the
greatest living master of the 'cello,
They will appear in a joint recital in
a program unique in the annals of
Ann Arbor music.
Harold Bauer was born in England
of a musical family. His work at-
tracted much attention and at the
suggestion of Paderewski a career as
pianist was outlined. He made his
debut in Paris, toured every section
of Europe and first appeared in Amer-
ica in 1900 with the Boston Symphony
Pablo Casals was born in Spain in
1876. After studying the flute, violin,
and piano, and becoming proficient on
all of them, he was persuaded by Jose
Garcia to take up the 'cello which he
did and developed great ability in -e
very short time. He appeared in all
of the musical centers of Europe and
attracted much attention by his re-
markable virtuosity and special ability
on his chosen instrument.
While both of these artists have
won positions of distinction separate-
ly,.it has been in their joint recitals
that they have startled the musical
world most ,profoundly.

TO APPEARNEXT WEEK
Nearly All Papers Deal with Spect-
rographic Work Under Prof.
H. IL Curtiss
The second volume of the publica-
tions of the astronomical observatory
of the University of Michigan covering
the year 1916 has just left the press
and will be issued to the public with-
in a week.
Nearly al the papers of this volume
are concerned with the spectrographic
work of the observatory which has
been under the immediate supervision
of Prof. Ralph H. Curtiss. Dr. Cur-
tiss designed the spectrograph and
measuring engines for this work and,
with Dr. Merrill, planned the pro-
grams for work. In the preface Prof.
William J. Hussey, director of the
observatory states: "In planning the
reorganization of this observatory in
1905, one of the objects sought was to
provide means for modern astrophy-
sical investigations." To this end a
large reflecting telescope having an
aperture of 37/ inches and a focal
length of 60 feet was constructed un-
der his supervision and since its com-
pletion in May, 1911, has been used
almost exclusively for photographing
stellar spectra. More than 3,700 spec-
trograms have now been made and
with few exceptions they are suitable
for exact measurement.
Articles of this volume of publication
have been contributed by Professor
Curtiss, Dr. Merrill, Laurence Hadley,
W. Carl Rufus, Clifford C. Crump and
Bernhard H. Dawson. Dr. Curtiss has
prepared enlarged photographs of
spectra which are used as illustrations
in this volume and in all papers the
observations and results obtained have
been recorded by a profusion of ex-
cellent charts and tables.
In addition to these articles upon
spectrographic work are papers on
the registration of earthquakes record-
ed at the observatory during the years
1914 and 1915, on the discovery of two*
bright-line stars of Class B, and on the
observations of the Comet Taylor. A
characteristic plate of the complete
observatory serves as"the frontispiece
of the volume and two splendid plates
of the 37 t inch reflecting telescope
This volume of the University of
Michigan publications is issued by au-
thority of the executive board of the
